We talked about this a little in WoT, but it really deserves a thread of its own.

Let's start at the top: Producing a movie where things go fast does not make one the ultimate authority for making any movie about things that go fast.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Awww. I thought we were gonna talk about the Sonic movie that already exists.



[EDIT: Wait, is that how Sonic is going to look? It's weird and gross. Part of Sonic's appeal is that he has scrawny noodle-arms and noodle-legs. Yes, he's stylised and unrealistic--------he's only a cartoon character, for cliff's sake.

I'm struggling to see how that Sonic can look anything other than hideous.

Eww. Is he sitting on the Golden Gate? Please no Sonic in the real world. That's just wrong. Leave him on Planet Freedom, where he can thwart Robotnik's plans to kidnap Princess Sara.

From what I've read that leaked design might just be an early prototype/mockup. It doesn't really match the other two images and the guy he has his feet on is just a preexisting image of Chris Pratt who was ultimately not cast in the film. That said, it's actually kind of a cute design.

That leaked Sonic isn't as bad as what I imagined but still not right.

i hope thats not true because the leaked design is less grotesque than the teaser images imply, so if its an earlier design that means somebody made him even more freaky

yeah that mockup design isn't completely terrible and i will be so happy if they scrapped it for something so much more grotesque

If they're going to make Sonic into a monster I hope they at least acknowledge it in-film, unlike TMNT.

It could just be me, but I feel like they should work on making a good Sonic game before they work on making a good Sonic movie LOL.

^It's like, they keep figuring out how to make good Sonic games, then they keep abandoning that for no reason.

I only played Colors (DS) but it was surprisingly good. I didn't like Generations on PS3 and hated it for 3DS. Mania seems good. Forces... doesn't.

They should’ve made a sonic Forces movie entirely about your OC fist bumping sonic. Since they didn’t do that the movie will be bad. This concludes my nuanced thoughts on the matter.

((Ok seriously I don’t mind the leaked design at all and I hope that’s how it ends up looking bc the official posters look horrifying.))
